Berta’s Ride

Hi everyone! A very Happy Hump Day to you! The closing date on our house was  postponed so we’re looking forward to moving the first weekend in April! I have a fun post for you today – a project created with Simply Crafty SVGs free Treatmobile cut file. As soon as Sandy added this cut file to the store, I had to have it. My sister, Roberta, had a 1964 VW Beetle back in the day that she affectionately called Herbie. She passed away in 1988 and I’ve never forgotten all the fun we had in that car. Our road trips were amazing. I could go on and on as I reminisce!

I used white cardstock for the car base, and medium and dark shades of purple cardstock for the car parts. I used a sweet floral patterned paper for the doors.

A new challenge went live on March 1st over at Your Scrapbook Place (yep, I’m still a guestie!) and I’m stoked to share my mid-month GD inspiration project for our March Challenge with The Paper Nest Dolls! Come on over and play!

2018_0226007a

I chose the adorable Flower Cart Avery digi to create my double flap fancy fold birthday card! OMG, I’m so smitten… I L-O-V-E this image! Isn’t she just the cutest?!

2018_0226005a

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers to coordinate as best I could with the colors in the paper and adhered it to the front flap, and stamped a birthday sentiment in black ink.

2018_0226006a

I stamped another sentiment inside the front flap…

2018_0226008a

…and then a flower image and another sentiment on the inside flap. Even though there is a ribbon closure, I added a velcro circle to keep the front flap closed. I love how this turned out and see a few more in my future, lol!

Dream ATC

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Can you believe we’re headed into the middle of March?! The Blank Page Muse ATC challenge, is live today and I’m stoked to share my Inspiration Team project! I created my very first ATC… believe it or not… not sure why I haven’t created any yet because they are so simple and so fun! Just like a mini card front with no inside work to be done, lol! I used stamps from Classic Spark Rubber Stamp Set (diamond background) and Memories Art Rubber Stamp Sheet (butterfly) and Art Journal Words, Swirls and Curves (Dream word).

2018_02100005a

Green and blue is one of my favorite color combos. I started by dropping Sailboat Blue, Aqua, Botanical and Citrus alcohol ink along with blending solution, on a piece of Yupo paper. I repeated the process until I got the look I wanted and let it dry.

2018_02100001a

I trimmed the paper and stamped the diamond background from the Classic Spark Rubber Stamp Set in Black StazOn ink. This stamp is huge and amazing! :)

2018_02100002a

I stamped the sentiment and the butterfly in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored the butterfly with Spectrum Noir markers.

2018_02100003a

I cut the sentiment with a stitched oval die and inked the edges, and then fussy cut the butterfly and added clear sparkle overlay marker. I arranged the sentiment and butterfly, along with white pearls and a pretty fabric flower to complete the ATC. Love how this turned out!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! I’ve popped in today with a fun DT inspiration project for Simply Crafty SVGs using the Side by Side Box Card cut file and the shamrock from the Pot O Gold Treat Box cut file. OMG, you’da thought I was a giant kid putting this together, lol! What fun!

2018_02110001a

I used 120# kraft cardstock for the card base which makes the card pretty stable. I used a couple shades of green cardstock for the vehicle along with some ‘manly’ patterned paper that I lightly inked. I used an extra print and cut sentiment (included in the cut file) that I punched with a circle punch.

2018_02110002a

I cut several shamrocks (from the Pot O Gold Treat Box cut file) and attached them to strips of clear window sheet to load up the back of the vehicle! :D

And one final shot showing the collapsed and ready-to-mail card. So cool! ;)

Side Step Tool Box Card

Hi everyone! I’m happy to share that I’m once again guesting for Scrapping4fun Challenges! One of my art journal spreads was a Featured Creation a few weeks back, so here I am, lol! I’m thrilled to share my GD inspiration project for Challenge #110 – Masculine/Boys. Come play with us! I created a super cute masculine card that could easily be used for a birthday or for Father’s Day, using the Side Step Tool Box Card cut file from the Silhouette store. How flippin’ cute is this?!

2018_02150001a

The base was cut from red, the drawers from red and silver, the peg board from dark brown and the tools from yellow and silver cardstock. And I added a couple flat head screw brads. Oh, what fun!

One final shot showing the step card construction. I’m so smitten with this cut file!

Hello, my crafty friends! I’m posting our new “Anything Goes” challenge for March on the a2z Scrapbooking blog this morning and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project, a very cool note card I created with the Hero Arts Make Your Own Digital Kit Sewing Fashion! I’m totally in love with this digital kit! I’ve been somewhat of a seamstress since the age of about 9 when my sister, Syd, taught me to sew my own clothes on Mom’s treadle-turned-electric sewing machine. THAT sure gives my age away, lol!

Leslie

Super simple card. I printed the scissors background in blue on the ivory cardstock and overlayed the clothes mannequin along with the sentiment and pins. I cut the panel to size and tool distressed the edges. I printed an additional mannequin which I fussy cut and popped up on 3-D foam pads. I added Morning Dew Crystal Drops to the ‘buttons’ on the mannequin and Midnight Blue Crystal Drops to the background.

2018_02100012a

Here’s one more angled shot to you can see the dimension. I layered an ivory panel on navy cardstock for the inside which I left blank for a custom message. Love how this turned out, and it would be super fun to mass produce these for a gift! ;)
